Steemitworldmap - what do we do, how do we do it, who are we, what can you do!
This beautiful quote, which most travelers are familiar with, emboldens the spirit of Steemitworldmap.
What if we could all share our personal travel-experiences with one another in a convenient way. What if there was a place where you could feel connected to travelers from all over the globe and listen to their stories, while sharing your own. We can all agree that that would be an amazing experience.
Our aim is to connect travelers from all over the world and have them share their personal experiences with one another
How do we do it?
We wanted to have all the stories easily accessible and make it possible to find stories sorted by place or by author.
To do just that, we have created Steemitworldmap. A map which automatically finds posts from travel-bloggers and adds these to itself.
Welcome to the newest way of sharing travel-stories!
How can I get on the map?
- Go to Steemitworldmap
- Click code on the bottom
- Click on the map where your post should be (zoom in if needed and add description if wanted)
- Copy and paste the code in your post
- Your post has now been added to Steemitworldmap!
Your code should look something like this
[//]:# (!steemitworldmap 46.012224 lat -34.321289 long Updated: want to learn more about the map? Click here! d3scr)

The upkeep of the Steemitworldmap takes a lot of work. At all times we have a team of four people working on the project on a nearly daily basis. Fixing bugs, curating the content, improving the Editors Choice Map, etc. etc.!
We love doing it, but with the map growing at an incredible rate, the workload is becoming bigger and bigger. The entire team is working longer hours, trying to keep up! Behind the screens, we are constantly optimizing the Steemitworldmap project!
Steemitworldmap is being developed by @martibis and @oroger, with occasional help from other developers. Our team also consists of a team of curators, that help select the best travel posts every day for our daily #traveldigest. The two most longstanding members of our curation team are @choogirl and @livinguktaiwan.
@martibis is a passionate and young web developer and the founder of Steemitworldmap. He's spending a lot of time behind his laptop. Whenever he can find the time he is traveling the world, looking for new adventures!
@oroger is an incredibly talented and experienced back-end developer, without him there might not be a Steemitworldmap right now! He is a fan of new technologies since ... well always. He has been a developer for 10 years and is also involved in the french Steem community were he is maintaining the Comprendre-Steem website. He is focusing on software architecture and development, mainly in Java and Python.
@choogirl is one of the most active curators on the platform and is also helping with the selection and curation of the content for our daily #traveldigest. Also a curie curator, which in itself speaks of how highly skilled she is in curating good content. She moved from Austalia to Panama after quitting her job, selling/giving away all her stuff, and buying a one way plane ticket to her new life.
@livinguktaiwan is a strong member of the Chinese community and is also helping with the selection and curation of the content for our daily #traveldigest. After living her life in the UK and working in Hong Kong she decided to take a career break and move to Taiwan.
